As one of the World’s leading solder sphere and precision ball manufacturers, it is Scientific Alloys' mission to produce flawless spheres from precious and non-precious materials. We take pride in our superior, highly evolved manufacturing process, and incorporate SPC throughout our work. The SAC Quality Team is dedicated to nothing less than unwavering consistency over time. Our results are extraordinary reflecting the fact that our standards are among the highest in the industry. When it comes to capability, Scientific Alloys will ALWAYS push the limit. As a result, we boast a level of versatility unmatched in the industry.
Scientific Alloys processes are tightly controlled, continuously improved and designed for versatility. This allows us to produce the highest quality spheres from low melting point bismuth based alloys to high melting point brazing alloys and beyond. Our team prides itself on producing spheres with bright and shiny surfaces, to strict customer tolerances, and inspected to ensure consistent overall dimensional accuracy. Our spheres and balls are always produced with the highest quality raw materials, responsibly sourced, complete with Certificates of Analysis and Compliance to ensure customer control along the entire supply chain.
Solder and braze spheres used for joints perform as electrical, thermal, and mechanical interconnections in electronic systems used in the telecommunication, computer, avionics and automotive industries. Additionally precious metal spheres can be used to solder jewelry and have an array of medical instrumentation and procedural applications due to their biocompatibility and high resistance to fatigue. Spheres can also serve very effectively as packing media in many cryogenic applications where super low temperature environments are created and/or maintained, such as cryogenic pumps, cryo-refrigeration systems, and second stage displacers.
Scientific Alloys typically offers 1 to 2 week delivery times on most orders but can adjust lead time per order/delivery based on available stock, projections, long-term purchase orders/contracts with release schedules….ect. Spheres are commonly packaged in glass jars backfilled with argon, but can accommodate specific customer requirements.
